Do we need yet another Dusty compilation when the market is already flooded with them ? Well, the short answer is a resounding YES because Mercury finally gets it right by putting out a truly essential compilation with a theme - her Complete A & B sides released in the UK between 1963 and 1970 and the result is simply smashing. Strictly no messing about. The singles are in strict chronological order with the A sides on one disc and the B sides on another. They are also in rare mono - the original singles mix - unless the tapes are unavailable, in which case the familiar stereo mixes are used (eg, Losing You and Little By Little). Some of the hits (eg. Goin' Back) are aurally very different in mono and a special treat. Some of the fades also run on longer than usual (eg, In The Middle Of Nowhere and Some Of Your Lovin').

The non-stop run of hits (plus a couple of unconscionable misses like the funky Northern Soul classic What's It Gonna Be and Clive Westlake's excellent I Will Come To You) on Disc 1 simply leaves you breathless and giddy with joy and admiration at how in the 60s Dusty was faultless in her selection of original material for singles. Songs tucked away on the B sides were almost as good. Four were even written or co-written by her (eg, Once Upon A Time, Something Special, I'm Gonna Leave You and Go Ahead On). My own personal favourite is the little known Goffin & King girl group beat song I'll Love You For Awhile, given a real punchy treatment here.

And you can't ask for more in terms of packaging. Eclipse has used a gorgeous photo of a sooty-eyed Dusty circa 1965 for the front cover and it's just fab ! Complete A & B Sides is truly an essential buy. Hurry, grab yourself a copy.

A clever idea and a superb compilation - compiled with affection by BOB STANLEY of SAINT ETINNE - this remastered 41-track 2CD 'Archive Series' retrospective pretty much does what it says on the tin. It lumps together in one cheap and cheerful package all of Dusty Springfield's British 45's on Philips from 1963 right through to 1970. You get the original MONO mixes with the A-sides on Disc 1 and the B's on Disc 2. Here are the Mary Quant mascara lines, Carnaby Street short skirts and perfectly coiffed hairdos...

Released July 2006 - "Complete A And B Sides 1963-1970" is on Mercury/Eclipse Archive Series 0-06024-9838528-9 (Barcode 602498385289) and breaks down as follows:

Wow! I didn't realise how many hits she had. Some songs I had never heard before.The "B" side songs are fabulous. An absolute must for Dusty fans.

A superbly curated collection of every Dusty Springfield UK A & B side between 1963-1970, with most getting their first CD release in punchy mono with just a few exceptions due to missing tapes. Disc 1 contains 21 A sides, one a duet with Tom Springfield; Disc 2 contains 20 B sides, the difference due to that duet single not featuring Dusty on its obverse. Beautifully and crisply realised there are plenty of hits here, but because most are in the rarer mono there's equal satisfaction for collectors and casual fans alike. Collectors get differences in mixes to the more familiar stereo versions as well as a lovely round up of never less than strong B sides, four written by Dusty herself, many produced by Dusty (not that she is credited) - a rare phenomenon for a female in the less enlightened 1960's. Casual fans simply get a series of terrific performances, many hits and a great retrospective of Dusty's 60's career, acting as a fine introduction to a sublime performer with peerless vocal control. The big hits include I Only Want To Be With You, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, In The Middle Of Nowhere, Little By Little, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, Goin' Back and I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten - huge records all. But the quality control button is set to 10 throughout, as the lesser known tracks become familiar you soon realise what a perfectionist Dusty was. All of the B sides drip quality, nothing is throwaway, least of all the final track on the album Spooky which is simply breathtaking. This is a compilation put together with a lot of care by Saint Etienne, with the booklet featuring a considered and reverential essay by Bob Stanley, one of the disc compilers, that gives background, lovely photos of Dusty in all her 60's Carnaby Street glory, press cuttings and a few reproductions of single picture sleeves. Essential Dusty.
